“Time And Relative Dimension In Space.”
“You know what they call me in the ancient legends of the Dalek homeworld? The Oncoming Storm.”
“I am definitely a madman with a box!”
The Doctor – from the planet Gallifrey in the Constellation Kasterborous.
The Doctor has been exploring the whole wide universe and time itself for some centuries. Helping people, making friends, and changing lives. Albeit, not always for the better.
But he has an excitement and exuberance that can be infectious.
And he makes mistakes, but do not take him for a fool.
Never, ever, take him for a fool.
He’s worn different clothes, and bodies, and faces, over the years. And how he expresses himself can be different.
But he is the same man, always.
My first Doctor was the Fifth. I saw his first story on PBS during a school vacation. And didn’t really see him again til he was MY Doctor. The Ninth.
They’re in order up there, just count over if you’d like.
If you think the description is a little vague, it is. The Doctor is hard to pin down. And there’s a great tendency to get rambly, cause you think of the time he did this. Or when this happened. And then there’s when this wasn’t actually connected to that, but it seems like it was just because it’s The Doctor.
He has to be experienced. Just jump in. You’ll find your Doctor soon enough. Just be ready for when things go wibbly wobbly timey wimey.

I like the older Doctors, really, the ones up to and including Paul McGann. There was something primitive about those shows that made them enjoyable.
There is a nostalgia to them, but also what they were able to do back then can surprise. Reminds me of the conversation from The Five(ish) Doctors when they go on the modern T.A.R.D.I.S.
I didn’t get into Dr. Who until the 10th Dr.
I have friends for whom the 10th is their Doctor.
